Sikorsky has three additional MH-60R aircraft for the Royal Australian Navy in various stages of assembly at its SEAHAWK completion line in Stratford. Those aircraft will be handed over to the U.S. Navy in August and September 2013 for completion by Lockheed Martin in early 2014. The DMO is expected to take delivery of all 24 completed MH-60R aircraft by late 2016 via the U.S. Government's Foreign Military Sales program."The efficiencies of a multi-year H-60 helicopter contract with the U.S. Government, and close collaboration with the U.S. Navy and Australia's Defence Materiel Organisation, have enabled us to begin assembling Australia's MH-60R aircraft ahead of schedule," said Dave Zack, Sikorsky's Director of Maritime Helicopter Programs. "The men and women of Sikorsky are honored to continue supporting the Australian Defence Force with advanced capability SEAHAWK helicopters."
